It is Remembrance Day today, and I will be mostly offline, attending the national ceremony and visiting the War Museum. Back in April, on Good Friday, I visited two cemeteries in the Vanier area, east of the downtown core, and did a series on both of them. Beechwood Cemetery is a designated national cemetery, 160 acres of quiet graves, with prominent figures of local and national history buried here. It also features two sections that are designated as a National Military Cemetery. This is the newer section, and feeling that it was ideal for today, I placed these shots here.
Flags oversee the stretch of graves, and a cenotaph stands between them. There will be ceremonies here today in addition to the national ceremony at the War Memorial. The graves, laid out in the style of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, which has operated since the First World War, are (or will be) final resting places for those who have served in the military, with allowance for one additional family member to be buried with them.
